Default Current or modern politics in the United States

I get my regular updates on the abhorrent behaviour of much of the GOP and the Tea baggers of the Right from crooksandliars.com Nowhere better to see the take over of a once quite noble political party (the party of Lincoln and Eisenhower), by an extreme faction that has no respect for democracy nor decency.

As a relatively well informed UK citizen I scored 82%. I'm sure that had I been taking it for real I would have read up a bit more and probably have scored a lot better.

I noticed that and went straight to the home page instead to find the quiz. I didn't look at the answers, honest, or I would have scored better.

So I had gotten 28 of 28 correct on the CM citizenship test, but then the website hung on me... I never got to complete the quiz. Maybe I'm supposed to log off and get a life?

So here's what I think about the state of politics in the US:

This is a country that was formed by the rich and for the rich. It always was and it always will be, until it crumbles from within. Loan sharking is now legal in this country, as long as it hides behind a corporate veil.

The Electoral College is party to the rich. Our votes for president are nothing more than a beauty contest, therefore 1/3 of our government is not controlled by the will of the people.

Further, there is no equal representation for minority political parties being communicated upon to the average citizen. Because of $$$, our media voices do not report on what is not in their specific interests & viewpoints. There used to be a fairness in media policy as chartered by the FCC. It went bye bye in the 80'. Thank you cable TV.

Finally, I believe that the Supreme Court is also controlled by the elite. I offer the fact that the court held that the corporation is now a being with equal rights with it's citizens.

The people of the US should be glad that Romney (rich elite) was not elected. Romney was a public cheerleader for corporate rights. As an ex-Mormon, I know very well what his belief system is all about.

So two things have to occur in the USA in order to avoid total collapse:

(1) Eliminate the Electoral College, and replace it with a direct popular vote for president. Where is Teddy Roosevelt when we need him most?

(2) Limit Supreme Court terms to 10 years, with no additional opportunity to serve in the Supreme Court beyond the 10 year limit. Judgeship for life is nothing but bunk, designed to protect the elite. Direct election of these judges is what is needed most.

That's what it's going to take for the USA to survive as a nation. We will either become dominated by China through ownership, or we will experience general social and financial upheaval leading to a collapse of what was once a great nation. Both may happen.

I wish we'd buy a clue from Canada, Great Britain, and Europe in general. Although I believe that capitalism is the best financial system, it is one very poor social system.

American greed will be it's own undoing if those 2 changes do not occur.

I'm hoping that God had some divine influence over our last election.

Cheerio!

PS - May the Tea Party rot in peace. They are nothing but dishonest Libertarians. The Republican party needs to dump them now.

It means you would probably make a better American Citizen than 90% of the Tea Party.

Come to the dark side comrade!

You mean 10% would be better? Oh man!

On the other hand, some Americans are well-educated and have good values

Some time ago American students were asked where they thought this sentence came from:

"to each according to his needs from each according to his abilities"

... and many thought it came from the Bill of Rights

So there's hope
